And, whats this gang of armed people about? You are not informed. The NY case was committed by ONE SUBHUMAN not a GANG. And, the MI case involved two subhumans.
Legalize drugs in the answer according the LibbyLou. You are most illogical.
It's not illogical at all. You just don't have the capacity to understand what I was telling you. You seem to lack the ability to understand that anecdotal evidence is not meaningful. You are making the logical
jump of assuming that because you saw one instance of something, than all instances must also be like the one. There is no line of reasoning that can get you to that conclusion. It's void of logic. The fact that you call me illogical only makes it more amusing. You just did the logical equivalent of saying " I just saw a red car get into an accident, but that blue car there just missed the accident. Red cars must be less safe than blue cars". That is precisely what you did and yet you call me illogical.
The MI case does not prove anything. When you pull a gun on an armed assailant, the only thing you are assuring is that someone is going to get shot. Most armed robberies don't result in shootings. The gun is simply used as a threat of violence to get compliance from victims. The second you respond to that threat with another gun, you are assuring that the situation will end in shooting and death. It may be the criminal who gets shot, but maybe not. What you have accomplished is that you have removed from the universe of possibility the potential outcome where no one gets shot.
Also... you totally ignored that section where I talked about a private company's right to determine it's own terms of employment. I guess it didn't fit with your viewpoints or caused some sort of contradiction in your half functioning mind which simply couldn't be resolved so you ignored it.
